Simple poetry writing – website

Screen Shot 2014-06-11 at 9.42.02 AM

Sorry it’s been so long – I have had major trouble issues with SMART notebook and haven’t been able to access my files or the program on my new computer.  So for the time being it is going to be lots of website recommendations.  I have found a great one to share today and it’s all about writing poetry.  This website gives students an opportunity to write themed poems on the smart board.  You pick a theme (apple, sports, nature, transportation etc) then it asks you to come up with words surrounding it. Then it leads you to a page where you can write you poem on line in a colourful picture. Finally you can print it out. Great for interactive class writing.  Click below on Theme poetry.
